Tooth Crowns in Tauranga
If you are looking to get dental crowns in Tauranga, call Tauranga Dental House, your trusted provider of restorative dentistry.
A dental crown is the ideal restoration if you have a tooth that is heavily decayed, damaged, or broken. Smaller indirect restorations consist of inlays or overlays. Crowns (popularly called “caps”) cover and protect the entire tooth. Like fillings, crowns are available in a variety of materials. There are four kinds of crowns; resin, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal and gold. Each of these types of crowns has different indications and benefits.
Installing an indirect restoration takes at least two visits. During the first visit the tooth will be shaped in order to accept the restoration. A mould is then used both to create a temporary crown and to fabricate your indirect restoration in a dental laboratory. Once your restoration is finished you return for its placement.
Materials for Indirect Restorations
Porcelain or ceramic crowns, inlays and overlays are now the most commonly used indirect restorations. The colour of the porcelain can be closely matched to your own teeth. Dental porcelain is also very durable. Porcelain fused to metal crowns are indicated in high-pressure chewing areas.
Gold alloys are famous the world over for their use as crowns. Although the colour obviously does not match your teeth, dental gold is highly resistant to tarnishing and wear.
